It’s all here

Just like the diversity of issues and voices in student publications, Los Angeles offers a diversity of experiences to its visitors. From the warm sandy beaches to the Hollywood glamor to the ethnic neighborhoods, It’s All Here in Los Angeles.

And, as student journalists, you can explore the City of Angels and soak up all the journalism this city offers. Join us April 14-17, 2016, at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel in downtown Los Angeles for the JEA/NSPA Spring National High School Journalism Convention.

Los Angeles, the second largest city in the United States, offers all you want to see and do and it’s all within a few miles. There are several professional sports teams in season in April: Dodgers, Lakers, Clippers and Kings. Within walking distance from the Westin Bonaventure, you will find Disney Concert Hall, and just a short subway ride away is the Hollywood Hall of Fame.

So make plans now for JEA and NSPA’s visit to Los Angeles in April 2016, which has warm sunny days almost year round.
